The IRS chose which year to use (generally, the most recent one they had processed). You didn't have any input into that, and you can't use your 2019 numbers to claim the credit now.

Since you didn't get any of the rebate in advance, you will figure your actual credit based on your actual 2020 income when you file your 2020 tax return this year.
Thank you so much for helping us on this. From what you've said previously, it seems like Ill get the first rebate via my tax return. Its a little confusing how they use 2018 and 2019 returns, since some people qualify from either one.

The instructions I found this on is here;

It is a draft, so maybe it will change?
He is included. DF also died in 2020 during the summer.

No, I don’t expect changes for eligibility, the law spelled it out this time.

I’m the executor for DF’s estate and will be filing his taxes and dealing with a refund.

As far as taxes are concerned it doesn’t matter when during the year you died. It’s always been that way.

The worksheet on page 59 of the draft version of the instruction uses one's 2020 AGI to determine how much of the (untaken) two stimulus payments one can claim on Line 30 of form 1040. It wouldn't really matter if you owe any taxes although it isn't clear to me if you meant owing no taxes because your income was too low or because you had a tax liability but had enough other credits to offset it.

Thanks everyone. I edited my response in post #182 before reading the other responses, as my question had already been answered by Cathy, I had just forgotten.

Well, when the first stimulus occurred, thatís all the info they had. Not everyone had filed their 2019 taxes even. No way to know 2020.

Several folks posted that the IRS site said they were scheduled to have their check mailed on the 6th. Have any of you received it yet?

My snake-bit friend, the one who always has all these weird, lousy things happen to him, got his check last week, the same time he got his driving privileges back after they had been suspended for a year due to medical condition. Maybe he shakes the snake-bit label in 2021?

Was there some kind of sort by income to get it to those needing it more sooner?

I re-read it, and noticed a missing comma...."...more, sooner", not the cringe-worthy "more sooner", hehehe!

Are you sure you're expecting a paper check and not an EIP debit card? I don't know if the site tells you what they sent on the 6th or just that they sent you something. If it doesn't explicitly say "check", then keep an eye out for an envelope from "Money Network Cardholder Services" as well.

The card looks like this.

Mine said scheduled to be mailed on the 6th and received check (not debit card) today. Think yours and others who had similar IRS notice is probably just a USPS mail delay and you'll likely receive it soon.
